Subject: Excellent collection of short mystery stories
Not all of them end happy, but the guilty party is certainly caught. I found all of them great listens except for the last one. That was was pretty sad and painful to listen to.

I think if I had been the author, I would have started the collection with that one and put happier ones at the end so the overall story ends on a positive note. But that's just IMHO. :-)

Reader was excellent.

Series of stories about earlier times in Austrakia.
I had not read or heard of these, though I knew of the Journal.
Wonderfully read, as though an aunt was reading to me. Some stories I liked better than others and overall a great listen.
